As part of Microsoft's massive layoffs, Xbox Entertainment Studios will also get the axe. This studio was only recently created for producing original Xbox programming, which had Steven Spielberg's Halo live-action TV show on the content list.
Not all of XES' employees will be laid off, however. President Nancy Tellem and executive vice president Jordan Levil will "stay on and remain committed to original programming already in production," which includes the Signal to Noise documentary, Halo: Nightfall, and Steven Spielberg's Halo series. Microsoft also assure that the entertainment apps and ability to watch TV through the Xbox One will not be affected during this change.
But we should not expect any future original programming.
Phil Spencer has been promoting a focus on games since he took the Xbox helm, and this could be just another step toward that mission.
